WELCOME


Porsches in Shenandoah Valley The Shenandoah Region of the Porsche Club of America (PCA) is dedicated to enjoying Porsche cars in central Virginia. While Porsches are the common element, our members provide the club with variety and enthusiasm. We organize scenic driving tours, run six autocrosses each year, and take part in high-performance driver's education events at the Virginia International Raceway. Our premier event is the Richmond Porsche Meet (RPM), a June weekend including a concours, lunch, driving tour, tech session, banquet, and an autocross at the Southside Speedway. We also hold a Christmas party and several social meetings annually.

Nonmembers are welcome to participate in a social meeting, a driving tour, or an autocross. Learn more about the Shenandoah Region PCA and our upcoming events, the PCA Zone 2 comprising 10 nearby regions, the national PCA, and how to JOIN PCA.

TUDOR United Sports Car Championship (TUSC) Races and PorschePlatz at VIR on August 23 – 24:

Our Porscheplatz will feature a Porsche-only dedicated car corral and a hospitality tent where you can relax, watch the races on cable TV, and hear presentations by Porsche Motors North America, team drivers and sponsors, and Porsche-only Parade Laps. Your ticket gives you access to the paddock where you can see the cars and drivers up close and personal.

The races feature the VIR debut of the TUDOR United Sports car Championship, America's all-new premier sports car racing Series. The Series was created by the merger of the GRAND-AM Rolex Sports Car and American Le Mans organizations.

This will be a great opportunity to see the Porsche factory teams driving the 911 and 912 cars as well as the Porsche-supported Falken Team. Don't miss this chance to see some exciting racing on one of the premier road courses in the U.S. Click here for a printable race schedule. The main races are on Sunday, August 24. Tickets range from $50 to $190 depending on the package. To purchase your tickets/Porscheplatz/car-corral pass, click here.

The Porscheplatz includes the Porsche Corral (Porsche parking only), visiting the Porsche/PCA hospitality tent, listening to the speakers, and Porsche Car Corral Parade laps on Sunday, August 24. The Porscheplatz schedule, which includes speakers and special activities, usually doesn't come out until closer to or at the event. Special Note: If you want to do the parade laps on Sunday, be sure to check in as soon as possible at the Porscheplatz registration table, sign the insurance waiver, and get a wristband. (Last year they ran out of wristbands, so some people did not get to go out.)

We need volunteers to help staff the corral on both Saturday, August 23 and Sunday, August 24. An entrance ticket to the race will be provided on the day in which you volunteer. If you have an interest in volunteering, please email PCA Zone 2 Representative Cheryl Taylor at zone2rep@comcast.net.

The 30th annual Classics on the Green car show will take place on Sunday, September 14 at the New Kent Winery. This show has something for everyone—interesting cars and people, food, wine, and entertainment. It has been very popular with Shenandoah members for many years. The featured marque for 2014 is Ferrari. Exhibitors may participate in pre-show activities on Friday evening and Saturday. Part of the proceeds of this event will benefit the Fisher House, an organization that benefits military families in need. For more details, see the show web site.

If you plan to show your car and have it displayed on the field, want to participate in exhibitor activities, or both, you must register in advance.

Advanced tickets for general admission to the Car Show as a spectator and the Wine Festival/Car Show package can be purchased online; click here. Tickets will also be available the day of the show for these two types of admissions.

The First Settlers Region PCA (FSR) is providing free snacks, drinks, and shade under their big hospitality tent on the show field. To partake of this opportunity you must purchase either exhibitor tickets (in advance) or spectator tickets (in advance or at the gate). You also need to register on MotorsportReg.com (no fee) by clicking here to give FSR a headcount. Online registration for FSR's Hospitality Tent closes on Thursday, September 11 at 9:00 AM.

Vintage German Swap Meet: The 12th annual Vintage German Swap Meet for pre-1975 air cooled VW and Porsche cars will take place from 8 AM to 4 PM on September 20 at Ski Roundtop near Lewisberry, PA. Michael McNulty, President of the Central Pennsylvania Region, says "It's a nice event. There are lots of different cars including Porsches. If the weathers nice its a pretty venue and its an easy drive from the highway."


First Settlers Region Fall DE at VIR: The annual First Settlers Region fall DE will use the South Course of VIR (VIR) at Alton, VA (map and driving directions) on Saturday and Sunday, September 20 –21 , and the Full Course on Monday, September 22. On-line registration is open via MotorsportReg.com You may register for the whole event or for Monday only.

Are you new to DE and on the tire wall about whether Driver's Education is for you? FSR offers a great opportunity for those wanting to get a taste of DE without signing up for the entire event. For a $50 fee, they will get you out on the track in your car with an instructor for a single session after lunch on Saturday. Standard DE safety requirements apply, so you'll need a Snell SA rated helmet. FSR now has a limited number of loaner helmets, so if you need a loaner, please email the registrar to ensure they have your size and reserve it for you before you register.
